Japan-US Watershed Hydrology and Forest Biogeochemistry
Tague contributes to this international working group – looking at how RHESSys might be useful for synthesizing spatial dense measurements of forest thinning effects on nitrogen cycling and water – and thinking about how emerging isotopic data from streams and groundwater wells can be used to improve RHESSys representation of subsurface flowpaths
Tague, C. L., Choate, J. S., and Grant, G.: Parameterizing sub-surface drainage with geology to improve modeling streamflow responses to climate in data limited environments, Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci., 17, 341-354, doi:10.5194/hess-17-341-2013, 2013

This new publication uses empirical streamflow data from watersheds across the western US to build on our earlier working using RHESSys that demonstrated how spatial differences in underlying geology can play an important role in influencing how streamflow responds to changes in climate

Research and development supporting risk-based wildfire effect and prediction for fuels and fire management, International Journal of WIldland Fire,
Tague contributed to this review that highlights current tools for evaluating post-fire effects- and thinking about next steps. Our work with RHESSys and collaborators as part of the Western Mountain Initiative contribute to some of these next steps by linking fire-spread models with RHESSys to explore how patterns of fire and effects on hydrology and carbon cycling in the Western US may change in the coming decades
